NJ’s largest synagogue on marriage

In the seven blessings we bestow upon couples under the wedding canopy (Sheva B’rachot), there is one that will resonate particularly for us in the legal marriages we will be blessed to perform as of today, October 21st, 2013: “Praised are you, Adonai our God, for the creation of people.” Indeed, all people. We are so fortunate to now be able to bless those who stand under the wedding canopy without question of their sexual orientation. This is a milestone moment for our state and a milestone moment for us as God’s servants, who feel renewed in our privilege to serve all of God’s people.

No Soren456, Man creates gods because we don’t have the courage to own up to our own decisions.

@jerry:

It’s a Jewish aphorism, posted with quotes around it, relating to the temple’s statement.

Sorry that you’re unaware of it, and even more sorry that you felt that I needed your correction.

I do fine by myself, thank you.

“God created man because he likes the stories.”

I hadn’t heard that before. I rather like it. 8)
